Paper makes metal makes paper...

Here are some models for my potential object of desire. Although I found it a little frustrating to begin with, I actually quite enjoyed myself in the end!

Day 1
bracelet, techniques:  fly press, solder
whirlwind bracelet, techniques: roller, punch, solder (the text, on this, explains the concept: that words would be punched into the band in the form of a poem or conversation...
...I might have been thinking about this piece when designing it and have since found this - what a great idea!)
fascinator, techniques: piercing, roller, doming, solder *favourite*
earing, techniques: punching, folding, hand threading!
ring, techniques: folding, solder
